Awesome plugin! I was working on a track, wanted a midi triggered effect just like this. One google search and 5 minutes later, got it all working just like I had initially wanted. Very intuitive. Totally worth $20.

Glad you like what we did for VolumeShaper 3!

Bpb aka bedroomproducersblog just published a detailed review yesterday:

http://bedroomproducersblog.com/2012/03 ... meshaper-3

I should add he mentions an idea we always forgot, on our new oscilloscope: "Having such control over the zoom settings means that VolumeShaper 3 can actually serve as a rather flexible oscilloscope plugin, if you leave all amplitude modulation settings at zero!"

MusicTech just did a review in their April issue:

"This is a godsend for anyone producing four-to-the-floor music.. the curves you can create are much more flexible and musical than what can be done with a sidechained gate or compressor alone."

Hey all :)
I made this using 6 VolumeShaper 3's and AudioMulch.
Sort of shows off VolumeShaper 3's GUI and capabilities a bit.
Thought you may be interested.
A more detailed explanation of the process is below the video.

6 Additive Synthesizers, 6 Volume Shapers, and the AudioMulch Metasurface
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4g37Kt3 ... e=youtu.be
95 snapshots of the settings of 6 additive synthesizers (6 of AudioMulch's 10Harmonics synths) and 6 volume shapers (6 of Cableguys VolumeShaper3 VST plugins each shaping a 10Harmonics synth) were taken and mapped on to AudioMulch's Metasurface (a 2D area/window where snapshots of settings can be used to create a sort of map that allows the user to transition between the settings of instruments and effects). I then improvised moving around the Metasurface and recorded the output.

btw, I made sure Cableguys and VolumeShaper 3 were among the YouTube tags.

Great product guys.
I also have MidiShaper and FilterShaper and love them too.
Thanks for filling a gap in the plugin world with these inspiring devices.

VolumeShaper 3 got 6 of 6 points in German Beat magazine.

A quote, first the original one in German: "Ob Tempo-synchrone Stotter-, Pump- und Gate-Effekte, Verzerrung, Bitcrushing und Ringmodulation oder komplexe Rhythmusmuster: VolumeShaper 3 spielt bei einer Vielzahl von Anwendungen seine Stärken aus."

English version: "For tempo-synced stutter, ducking or gating, for distortion, bitcrushing and ring modulation or for complex rhythmic patterns: VolumeShaper 3 shows its strength in a multitude of applications."


Also, question for perfect English speakers: is my translation "shows its strength in a multitude of applications" good and correct English? Or would it better to write "in a variety of applications"?

You could also say "in an amazing variety of" for more promo panache. :)

(um... and even more with a dry/wet knob... ;) )

I hear your words (with the dry/wet knob)! Also my colleague Steffen forces me to sacrifice VolumeShaper 3's simplicity a tiny little bit. Will be there in an update soon!

To the English: So "in a multitude of applications" or "in a vatiety of applications" are both equally fine?

Yes either one sounds perfect. :wink:

Hey all, took a bit, but we finally added a mix (dry/wet) control to VolumeShaper with version 3.1, so you can easily adjust your sidechain compression effect, your gated rhythm or tempo-synced stutter.

Well and there could be a crash bug which could happen with Cubase (and maybe other hosts too), which likes to report negative timing values at the start of a song. This is fixed now too, with the new version 3.1.1:

http://www.cableguys.de/volume-shaper.html

It is not at all limited to it, but we hear the many people use it for creating pumping effect which you normally get with sidechain compression. Only that you can simply draw in the exact modulation that you want to.

Fully functional demo available, no time-limit:
